C.S. Harris: Sebastian St. Cyr Mysteries

The amateur sleuth Sebastian St. Cyr helps the aristocracy solve gruesome crimes with the aid of his sharp senses, deductive insight, and forensic skills. Having his own sordid history, St. Cyr is often personally interested in the investigation -- or accused of murder himself. These fast-paced mysteries set in Regency-era London should interest fans of richly detailed historical fiction. (Novelist)
